Class action lawsuite against SquareTrade Protection Plans purchased on Amazon
Received a email notice that there is a class action lawsuit filed against SquareTrade, Inc. The Action alleges that, during the Class Period, SquareTrade deceptively marketed and sold its Protection Plans through Amazon and failed to adequately disclose the terms and conditions of its Protection Plans prior to a customer’s purchase of the Protection Plan. including inter alia.
What relief does this Settlement provide? The settlement requires changes to be made . States : Requires that SquareTrade not prospectively deny a clam made under outstanding SquareTrade Protection Plans on the ground that the product subject to the Protection Plan was purchased from a retailer other than Amazon. In addition, Settlement Class Members who based on Square Trade records, had a claim denied under a SquareTrade Protection Plan on that ground that the product subject to the Protection Plan was purchased from a retailer other then Amazon will receive a refund payment equal to the amount the Settlement Class Member paid for the product subject to the Protection Plan, exclusive of sales tax and/or shipping less any percentage that the Court awards in attorneys’ fees for the Lead Class Counsel.
I know that in a Class Action Settlement the attorneys are the ones that benefit from this action. I just wanted to put out there that HSN also sells the SquareTrade Protection Plan and I have been denied a claim that was filed purchased form HSN. This makes me wonder about any and all protection plans that HSN and the Q are selling on their website through this company. This is only a notice of what to expect.
Just an FYI advising people of Purchasing the SquareTrade Protection plans.
Thanks for advising.
